An Easter Hymn

We are almost into the Christmas season. Naturally, that means I have arranged an Easter Hymn for all you Ward Choir directors out there!

This is one of my favorite hymns, "He Is Risen" for SATB. Not hard. The first verse features the entire choir in unison. The second verse is a men's trio with the tenors and basses singing the familiar parts from the hymnbook, while a few tenors sing the melody. The third verse gives the women a chance to shine in a new key. Then everybody joins together for the big finale. 

Don't forget to check it out in January when you are selecting music for your Easter Program.

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord!
